In this episode I sit down with a client of mine named Elaine and her midwife, Vanessa. Elaine came to see me during her pregnancy with the goal to be proactive by knowing how to support her changing body during pregnancy, prepare for her birth and understand ways to recover successfully.
I will never forget hearing her pride when telling me how she was able to apply everything she learned to her birth.
Vanessa discusses how Elaine’s body awareness and mind/body connection helped her get through her long 2nd stage of labour without requiring interventions.
Our goal for this episode is to:
Bring awareness to how women can play an active roll in their birth experience
